The adverse effects of the economic recession, immersion into the fourth technological revolution and market globalisation are some of the factors behind a convulsive environment marked by uncertainty. This new scenario has caused a mismatch between technological innovation and social innovation, highlighting the shortcomings of traditional organisational forms and the need for a change of company values.
InnovaPyme is a service designed to meet this challenge by training the principal intermediaries (local development agencies, clusters, chamber of commerce…) so that they can boost organisational transformation projects in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). InnovaPyme addresses the different stages of organisational transformation necessary to evolve towards an open social system that increases the competitiveness of SMEs and ensures its long-term survival.
Boost organisational change in SMEs
SMEs have structural limitations that often prevent them from meeting the challenge of organisational transformation necessary to maintain and/or increase their competitiveness. The principal intermediaries can play a key role in this regard. This service is aimed at all wishing to boost organisational transformation processes in SMEs.
Aimed at intermediaries that support SMEs to improve their competitiveness
